The first meeting takes place
Sadie, on left, at the entrance to her "quarantine" room and Angel, on right, sitting just outside the room. We opened the door, knowing that Angel was patiently sitting in the hallway. Sadie came out tentatively and quickly backed up when she saw Angel. Hubby decided to use the laser pointer to catch their attention and brought them within a few inches of each other. When he turned off the pointer both cats stayed in their positions, watching each other. As you can see, Angel looks a bit wary and is pulling back as he watches Sadie. Within a couple of minutes Angel disappeared down the hallway and we thought the introduction was over. But after a few more minutes passed Angel returned and went straight into the spare room to check out Sadie's digs. We let him walk around the room with Sadie following at a safe distance. Angel was curious but obviously was still being careful since we saw him slowly putting one foot in front of the other, barely putting any weight on each foot. Once he was done the circuit of the room, he decided he was done and hot footed it out the door.
